Happy King's Day

 January 6th is a big day in New Orleans. It marks three things: Twelfth Night, The Epiphany, and the beginning of the Carnival season.

Yes, while many people outside of New Orleans believe that Mardi Gras is a one day event, those of us living here know that it’s an actual season, kind of like Christmas. From Jan. 6 through Fat Tuesday, New Orleanians will be celebrating. I will be sharing the colors and sights of the season in the next couple months.

This year, Mardi Gras will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 1.

King's Day, y'all!
